    Using a Dell XPS400, Windows XP home. McAfee Security Center. All was fine and I began to load apps. Somewhere along the way the taskbar icons disappeared, except for McAfee, Dell Support and Palm Hot Sync. No volume control etc. Have tried all the items in the Taskbar properties. Have tried to restore to a previous date and this works for one boot and then goes back to the same problem. Have tried Dell online suport. They sent me to a "shellfix.reg" laod. Did not work. "msconfig" is set for all icon to show but they do not.Totally frustrated. Would love some help !!!!!!:mad: :mad:

    After hours on-line with Dell Tech supprot and no fixes the article youo recommended did the trick. Turning of the autologon makes things much better, but still not perfect. Some Icons, like the newtrok signal strength still do not appear.

    Thanks a bunch for your help.

    Are you sure they're not just hidden? Do you have an arrow next to the system tray that expands it?
